    I'm from the Netherlands and looking for a good/fast/cheap/reliable broker, to trade futures.

    I'm thinking about ffasttrade or velocityfutures or an other broker.

    Can you guys help me out fast!

  2. Hi GFT,

    No fast answer possible. Much depends on the volume you trade. The nature of your question suggest that you don't have much experience yet. So DON'T DO VOLUME as of now.

    I would say your best start is IB. (1) Quick and easy to get going; (2) Low cost; (3) Large following - Forums, ET; (4) Easily accessable API; (5) Lots of frontends; (6) Rather passable user acclaim.

    Once you get the hang of it, you will have gotten wise enough to go where you need to.

    Good luck,

    I'm looking for something else than IB.

    I have 4 years experiance in trading equity on XETRA.

    I'm looking for a good/fast /cheap broker to daytrade in futures.

    Like mini s&p/dow and maybe later on eurex dax/bund/bobl/schatz.

    I was thinking about ffasttrade or velocityfutures. Or is there an other good broker, comparable?

    I will trader about a volume of 250 contracts a day.

    50 rounds with 5 lots.
